The Lions of Teranga have been in red-hot form recently as they’ve earned seven wins and suffered just one loss in their last eight outings. Many argue they are currently the best side in Africa so they come into the competition confident and with a viable attempt to finally win the Cup in their 14th appearance.Although Tunisia will be a difficult opponent, they should have what it takes to win; with an attacking line in promising form bagging 15 goals in their last eight matches and solid defensive outfit keeping a clean sheet on five of those occasions!
Tunisia have been in an inconsistent and unpredictable form since November and we don’t feel they’ve timed their performances well. Henryk Kasperczak’s side have struggled to score goals in the four friendlies they’ve played since (failed to do so on two occasions), and they just might have a hard time against a defensive line led by Kalidou Koulibaly. Senegal to keep a clean sheet now comes at a good-looking 11/8 with BetVictor
, which will surely be a popular accumulator pick this weekend.
The teams have met five times in recent history, and Tunisia have better head-to-head records with two wins and three draws earned). Interestingly, on four of those occasions we’ve seen two or fewer goals and although Aliou Cisse’s side do like a different outfit since their last encounter, we’ll go for Under 2.5 goals FT here too at 19/40 with William Hill
Sadio Mane has attracted a lot of attention in the goalscoring market and rightly so – he’s been in great form with Liverpool and we expect him to show star performances throughout the competition. Mane has bagged two goals in his last four appearances with the Reds and two in his last five with the national squad, so we’ll back him to make an impact early on by scoring first at a generous 11/2 with Ladbrokes
